the lily’s bloom
the grazing doe
the secret smile

For each seed of tenderness we are grateful;
for each planting of joy we give you thanks.

the hazy dawn
the rolling thunder
the friendly silence

For each seed of wonder we sing gratitude;
for each planting of patience we give praise.

the quiet stream
the held hand
the deep breath

For each seed of love we lift up your name;
for each planting of faith we offer our joy.

you
me
we

Let each seed be a blessing,
a sign, a parable,
of your reign.


The Rev. Rachel G. Hackenberg‘s book with co-author Martha Spong, Denial Is My Spiritual Practice (and Other Failures of Faith), searches for faith through life’s trials. Rachel has also written Writing to God, a popular Lenten devotional, and other books.
